First-time visitors are always intrigued to find that golf carts seem to be the primary means of transportation in Avalon. The resort village is home to hundreds of the autoettes, with visitors, locals and business owners all taking advantage of the convenience afforded by the small vehicles.
Catalina Island vacationers who rent a vacation home through Catalina Island Vacation Rentals will frequently have access to a golf cart during their vacation, but there are several other ways to get around in Avalon. Catalina Transportation Services offers a low-cost shuttle every day in the summer months. The Avalon Trolley makes a loop that includes the Wrigley Memorial Garden, the boat terminal at the Cabrillo Mole and Descanso Beach. Tickets on the trolley are only $2 per ride or an all-day pass is available for only $7. The shuttle’s loop takes approximately one hour and it stops at various shuttle stops around town or you can request a stop.
The Catalina Island Trolley operates from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. During the winter, the trolley operates on a more limited schedule, but is still available many days.
